The first time I got in touch with a Google recruiter was more or less a week after I’d decided to enrol for a PhD. Apparently this – very kind, I must say – recruiter was browsing uni pages and found my profile. At the time, apart from telling her that I was due to start a PhD in some months, I was very interested in Systems Administration. She did all her best to convince me to apply as a Developer. Weird, but probably there’s some rules here. Of course after a couple of interviews in which I told them that I was not interested in moving to Switzerland and that I wanted to do a PhD, they decided not to pursue with my profile.
Now, again, a recruiter has contacted me. A week after having started a new job. This time, I’ve moved onto being a developer. Guess what? She wants me to apply for a Systems Administration position.
Google, you have knowledge of everything on the network. What about trying to tune your timing and select me for something I’m actually skilled for? 🙂
